Aluminum is known as a strong yet lightweight material. It is a soft, durable, lightweight, and malleable metal. Aluminum has about one-third the density and stiffness of steel. It is easily machined, cast, drawn, extruded, and brake formed. It is also widely used because of its incredible ability to resist corrosion. Aluminum Plate panels can be designed with caulked joints or an open-joint rain screen design. The end result is a clean looking, low maintenance panel system. Finishes include both painted and anondized. Because the panels are post painted, there can often be significant savings with custom colors compared to ACM.
With either a laminated or foamed-in-place core, foam panels provide high insulating value, strength and aesthetics. These panels feature a double-gasket shiplap joint in both vertical and horizontal applications to maximize thermal efficiency and create a double barrier against air and water penetration. For use in new construction or retrofits, foam panels can often meet the design concept while still staying within the project budget.
Phenolic panels are a flat panel based on thermosetting resins, homogenously reinforced with wood fibers and manufactured under high pressure and temperature. Using special techniques, the panels have an integrated, decorative surface with pigmented resins. The resultant properties make the product particularly suitable for a wide range of exterior applications. Phenolic panels are resistant to weather and sun and because it is closed pore, it does not attract dirt. Cleaning is easy and inexpensive.
Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) has been shaping the future of design since its introduction to the United States in 1978. ACM has earned its reputation as a premium metal product that provides an exceptionally flat surface and can be fabricated into a variety of shapes and curves. ACM is an aluminum composite material composed of two strong sheets of .020 aluminum with a proprietary core. The sheets are then engineered and fabricated into a finished panel system using aluminum extrusions.
